Lewis Morgan’s time in the Celtic team could be coming to an end if Neil Lennon feels the way fans did last night.

The former St Mirren and Sunderland star was given a rare chance to shine for the Hoops last night. He was a regular in the early stages of the campaign, but has recently struggled to make matchday squads. That wasn’t the case last night.

Morgan started against Partick, but failed to inspire once again. Celtic may have won the Betfred Cup tie 5-0, but he failed to do anything noteworthy despite getting the full 90 minutes.

Fans are now seemingly getting fed up with his lack of standout displays. Reacting to another poor Morgan performance last night, here’s what some of the supporters had to say:

 

Lennon likely to continue giving Morgan chances

The recent trend hasn’t looked great for Morgan. He managed to make the squad against Rennes, but his appearance against Partick was his first since his 20-minute cameo in Sweden against AIK.

He’s now managed 11 appearances this season, but he hasn’t been on the pitch in four of our last five matches. That tells you a story regarding how Lennon feels about his more recent performances.

Morgan started so well this term with an assist for Scott Sinclair in Sarajevo. But since then, he’s struggled to build on it. He also wasn’t helped by the fact Sinclair came on and bagged a goal. He also isn’t helped by the support and love many in the support still have for the Englishman.

With Mohamed Elyounoussi and Mikey Johnston ahead of him, Morgan doesn’t look in a great place at the minute. He’ll get chances over the winter period of course. It’s hardly the end of the world, but he had a big opportunity in the early stages of the season to really make a name for himself.

He made two Wembley appearances last season in cup finals. He may have lost them both, but he impressed in Wearside with Sunderland. All of that hard work in England was done with the goal of trying to get a chance at Parkhead.

He’s now had 11 of them, and so far, supporters just aren’t seeing enough. But it’s still a little too early to give up on him as a future Celtic star.
